The Healthy Mummy – Rhian Allen

| October 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

After falling pregnant with her first child 3 years ago, Rhian Allen decided to leave her corporate career behind to start a weight loss for mums website with the aim of helping mums lose their baby weight and feel great post pregnancy.

So what is so inspiring about Rhian? Well not only has Lose Baby Weight and subsequent site The Healthy Mummy become hugely popular and successful but Rhian has helped mums all over Australia and New Zealand lose over 200,000kg! That is literally HUGE!

Rhian has gone on to win the Emerging Mumpreneur of the Year Award and the Best Customer Service Award in the Annual Mumpreneur Awards held in August 2011, as well as being featured on Mornings with Kerri Anne in Australia. Rhian is also a regular blogger on sites such as Bubhub, Kidspot, Stay at Home Mums as well as being featured in New Idea, Take 5, Practical Parenting, The Telegraph, The Age, My Child and Offspring. Wow!

In my opinion what makes Lose Baby Weight and The Healthy Mummy so appealing to all mums is the emphasis is not about making extreme lifestyle changes or becoming some kind of crazy fitness fanatic but about ‘making health fun and part of your life.’

Here Rhian gives us a little insight into her life.

The Quick Fire Interview:

1. Describe what you do:

I run a health and weight loss business which helps mums lose any pregnancy weight in a safe and healthy way. The website is called www.losebabyweight.com.au and we have created health and weight loss products and plans that are easy to follow and are breastfeeding safe. We also have created our own range of nutritional and weight loss products called The Healthy Mummy which are used on our plans. Our website is free and we have a huge amount of support, motivation and tools to helps mums achieve their goals.

2. How would you describe yourself in five words?

Dedicated, Passionate, Driven, Crazy, Focussed

3. How did you get to where you are today?

I had a passion and vision to help as many mums get fit and healthy as possible.  I had studied nutrition and wanted to create a service that helped mums all over the world learn how they could get fit and healthy post babies – without having to resort to unhealthy methods.  I wrote a business plan, re mortgaged our house, used all our savings, employed the best staff and launched our business in October 2010.  Since then the business has been hugely successful and to date has helped mums lose over 200,000kg and 9 out of 10 mums who use our products would recommend them to their friends.

4. What/who/where do you draw inspiration from?

All around me. my family, my toddler, my friends, mums on our plans, our staff, mums on our Facebook page (over 36,000), customer feedback and just life in general. I love what I do and it feels incredible to be able to help so many people.

5. What person do you really rely on for support and encouragement in life?

My husband. Without him I would have gone mad by now!

6. What are you most grateful for?

My gorgeous family. Without them life would be pointless and I have my second baby due in December 2012 and I feel blessed every day to run a business around them and be here for them.

7. What is your wish for the future?

To have health and happiness for the rest of my life and for my whole family. I also would like the business to grow even bigger so more people can use our products and plans and learn how being healthy doesn’t have to be hard or boring.
